What kind of mileage can I expect from an RV?
This is hard to pin down, as it depends on the vehicle and how you drive it:
- Class A RVs and Motorhomes are the largest. Most are diesel, but some are gas. An average range is 8-13 MPG.
- Class B RVs are camping and touring vans. Some are diesel and get better mileage than gas. An average range is 10-25 MPG.
- Class C Motorhomes have luxury plus better gas mileage than Class As. An average range is 14-20PG.
- When pulling a trailer…depends on your towing vehicle. Gas or diesel. Drag. How much the trailer weights. You can probably figure on between a 10-25% reduction in mileage.
